the up and coming NBA Fantasy Regular season. As an NBA Agent, your goal is to
make sure your clients needs are being answered whether they are a free agent
and in need of a new contract or looking to get bought out of their existing
During regular season play, NBA GMs compete head-to-head in an NBA-like
18-week schedule declaring an 8-man rotation throughout the game week. NBA
Agents compete for points to see who has the best set of clients.

October. The Real-time portion of fantasy basketball begins on 10/30/2012
and ends on 4/16/2013.
Sign-ups are conducted between 6/21/2012 and 10/30/2012. Below is a the schedule for a Full Mock GM® offseason (approx: one month)
The Head-to-Head competition for NBA GMs are from Tuesday
thru Monday night games. The first day of head-to-head competition is 10/30/2012.
Every league will have a bye week the week of 1/22/2013 in
observance of the NBA All-star weekend. Head-to-Head competition will resume

For NBA Agents, ratings are based on the amount of money they negotiate free agent contracts and buyouts. Points are
decided by their clients performance throughout the season. Their clients MUST
be in a GMs lineup in order for the Agent to receive any points. The good thing
about this is that the Agent player does not have to do anything during the
regular season. The bad thing is that they are relying on the GMs to make sure
they put their players in their lineup. Top
GMs - Throughout a head-to-head competition during the week, GMs will have
the opportunity to declare an 8-man rotation. The 8-man rotation will consist of
a Center, Power Forward, Small Forward, Shooting Guard, Point Guard, Sixth Man
and two Flex players. Depending on the players position, players will be
eligible for particular spots. The Sixth Man, Flex 1 and Flex 2 positions can be
filled with any active player on a GMs roster as long as the player is under
contract. The other positions are must be played by players who are assigned
that position For instance, players who have a position of "C" are eligible
for the Center position, however a player who is a "F|C" can play
Center, Power Forward and Small Forward. a player who is a "G|F" can
player Point Guard, Shooting Guard, Small Forward and Power Forward.
Players are eligible for slots every day up to the time the player is
scheduled to play their game during that day. After tip-off, The player will not
be eligible to be assigned to any slot in the 8-man rotation until their next
NBA game. Two players cannot start at the same position.
GMs can have up to 12 men active on their rosters. If they have more than 12 men under contract,
they must assign players to the D-League or injured list (IL List). Both player assignments allow GMs to keep extra men under contract throughout
the regular season. Only certain players are eligible for the D-league. Every player is elibible for the IL List. You can assign as many eligible players (up to three(3) times each) to the D-League (DL). With regards to the IL List, up to three (3) players can be assigned to the IL List (IL) per team at one time. Players assigned to the IL List must remain on the IL list for at least 10 days before being eligible for the active roster
Agents - The beauty of being an agent is that the majority of your work is
done in the offseason. During the regular season, it is up to the GMs who have
your players to put your clients into their lineup in order to get points Top
